Students  should read one book thoroughly  rather consulting too many books. The choice of book should be one that give you clear inside about the subject and also simple and lucid so that we can understand basic things related to that subject (like Cohen book for Automata ).

    I am at cross roads right now in my IT career that has spanned 8 years. I am interested in artificial intelligence research area – loooong ago, in my final year engineering project was application of artificial neural networks on a real world problem. But, I never created any opportunity for myself to get back into research field.

    Your blog has motivated me more than ever to go for higher studies. I am aiming for gate 2013.

    thanks for your help.

    Hi any body can post gate forum cse books pdf here I am in need of it please if any body can ??

  16. jiu says:

    i need download ” discrete mathematics structure with application to computer by j.p treblay ”
    i downloaded from
    but more than 30 pages werw failed.
    do you have a better pdf for this book?

    • ADMIN says:

      Hi Jiu,
      That pdf file of J P trembly have limited pages only … no better pdf is available as far as i know… this book is old and out of print , may be that’s the reason for not having any pdf!
      By the way you can always use Discrete Math book by Rosen. It is good and sufficient.

    I have an ambition after all these years . Currently I am pursuing MCA through distance education , and planning to appear for GATE CSE 2017. I am 49 now . Is there any age restrictions for Gate and IITs. In any case I truly appreciate the efforts you have undertaken for this blog.
